GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Four years after acquiring prime property near Highway 90, the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center is moving forward with a major expansion project.
On Oct. 26, construction will start on phase two of the master plan for the children's museum in Gulfport. The project will feature outdoor learning exhibits with interactive displays, play areas and a three-level Ship Island Lookout. There will also be green space for outdoor performances, festivals and even weddings.
The Discovery Center received grants from the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources to purchase the land and to pay for the improvements.
